Happy Birthday America! - Part 2

My brother Tim invited us to join him on the 4th for a semi-family cookout. Since Ken and Tammy are in Colorado, and our boys were staying with Dad and Annette, Rebecca and I enjoyed a wonderful night out of town.

Ok, let's get this over with. I dressed for the occasion

Emily couldn't find the Kitty. She's such a doll.

Tim did an AWESOME job of cooking the speedies and steak. He really likes to use his new grill too :)


Emily took this picture. She loves to use the camera.

Then it was time for water balloons!!

UT OH!!!

After a good long nap, we all headed to the park for fireworks

Emily and Sarah (her cousin on Jen's side) had a ball with sparklers
This is Sarah
This is Tim's Goofy face, going into our Goofy Face Album soon to be posted!

This is Sarah impersonating Uncle Tim
With the sparklers almost gone, Sarah got a piece of hot metal on her lower eyelid! Poor thing. We thought it was in her eye, but after some cold water and some closer looking by her Daddy, she only had a tiny red spot under her eye. A lady at the park gave her a dollar to cheer her up :)
Then it was time for the REAL Fireworks!! I wish I could post all of the pictures I took, but these are the highlights. These are nowhere near the ones that Kristi took, but I think I did a fairly good job for my first July 4th :) Enjoy

The Perfect end to this story.
